't be an excuse for the other side to try to talk down the economy. just try to score a few political points. it's a reminder that this country has come too far to turn back now. >> reporter: the struggling economy is considered the president's soft spot and number one issue for voters. it's a centerpiece of romney's campaign, they hit the president hard throughout on employment including in this week's debate. >> we have 43 three straight months above 8%. i'll help create 12 million new jobs in this country. >> reporter: the new jobs report with unemployment below 8% robbed romney of one of his most reliable campaign lines. he said friday the economy should be better and that the decline in the unemployment rate showed how much people are struggling. >> looks like unemployment is getting better. the truth is if the same share of people were participating in the workforce today as on the day that the president got elected our unemployment rate would be around 11%. that's the real reality of what's happening out there. >> reporter: now advisers tell me romney will continue prosecuting the case ag

of this campaign which is the economy. >> john, i want to ask you about mitt romney and his foreign policy advisers and how he would differ from president obama. there's an interesting piece "new york times" in the today by david sanger, what he says of mr. romney. beyond his critique of mr. obama as failing to project american strength abroad, mr. romney has yet to fill in many of the details of how he would conduct foreign policy toward the rest of the world. and he also points out that romney has a disparate and politically fractured team of advisers that include warring tribes of neoconservatives and others. is there a coherent strategy that's coming from mitt romney on foreign policy, or is it a work in progress? >> it's absolutely a work in progress. and in part that's because you don't really know what a president's going to do until they're faced with these decisions. as david sanger wrote in his book about what president obama learned in the early parts of this presidency here, there was a covert operation going on with iran he had known nothing about when he was a candidate, that immediat

that's far, far secondary to the primary issue of this campaign which is the economy. >> john, i want to ask you about mitt romney and his foreign policy advisers and how he would differ from president obama. there's a piece in "new york times" where he says of mr. romney beyond his critique of president obama failing to show strength of u.s. abroad he has a fractured team of advisers that include warring tribes of neo-conservatives and others. is there a could herren strategy coming from mitt romney on foreign policy or is it a work in progress? >> it's absolutely a work in progress and in part that's because you don't really know what a president will do until they are faced with these decisions. president obama arrived to learn there was a covert operation going on with iran he had known nothing about when he was a candidate. that immediatelying changed his position on iran and engagement with iran. governor romney is taking advantage politically but there's no bright lines. >> who are mitt romney's senior foreign policy advisers. we both covered the campaign of george w. bush when

as a person in this economy and those segments on the economy last night were fabulous. >> let me just say governor granholm focused on a key word, who do you trust. the vice president of the united states doubled down on the president who for three weeks misled the american people. >> that's not true. >> it is true. the state department said flatly this week it never related to the video, it was related to terrorism. the state department asked for the supreme court. the ambassador's own diary said he had asked for the security. you want to talk about trust? having an american ambassador and three americans killed while the president lies to you is a pretty big question. >> but there's the question what intelligence did they get and what did it show from the beginning? >> the intelligence showed within hours this was a terrorist attack. people in the intelligence community said immediately it was an attack. the state department said this week we never thought it was about the video. >> mr. speaker, the head of the national intelligence unit said their intelligence was not clear in the begi

on the economy. he has argued that the president's policies just aren't working. yesterday, we saw him make a similar argument on foreign policy, saying the president is passive and basically sitting around, waiting for things to happen in the world. last night in california, the president fired back. at a fund-raiser in san francisco, president obama highlighted what he sees as some of the foreign policy accomplishments. like ending the war in iraq and winding down the one in afghanist afghanistan. >> as long as i'm commander in chief, we will sustain the strongest military the world has ever known. >> reporter: but the president, now down in the polls and struggling to recover from his lackluster debate, is firing yet another attack against romney. this one, over cuts to pbs with a new tv ad, satyrically comparing big bird to other criminals. >> one man has the guts to speak his name. >> big bird. big bird. big bird. >> it's me, big bird. >> reporter: romney now has momentum and yesterday delivered a major foreign policy speech, saying president obama is too hands off and passive in handl

romney's campaign has been the economy. he's argued the president's policies just aren't working. yesterday he made a similar argument on foreign policy saying the president is passive and just basically sitting around waiting for world events to happen. late last night in california, though, the president fired back. at a fundraiser in san francisco, president obama highlighted what he sees as some of his foreign policy accomplishments. but the president, now down in the polls and struggling to recover from his lackluster debate, is firing yet another attack against romney. >> as long as i'm commander in chief, we will sustain the strongest military the world's ever known. >> reporter: but the president now down in the polls and struggling to recover from his lackluster debate is firing yet another attack against romney, this one over cuts to pbs with a new tv ad satirically comparing big bird to financial criminals. >> the evil genius who towered over them, one man has the guts to speak his name. >> big bird. big bird. >> it's me, big bird. >> reporter: romney now has momentum

that has squarely in it the interest of the middle class and the notion that you build the economy through the middle class and through a strong middle class and the other side has the same trickle down theory that congressman ryan voted for all through the last decade, big tax breaks for the wealthy, deregulate wall street, let them write their own rules and hope for the best. we know how that story ends. >> paul ryan says he expects joe biden to come at him like a cannonball. is that the strategy? >> i think if he thinks that he's going to hold him to the facts, if he thinks that he's going to hold him to account for the positions that governor romney has taken in this campaign, their collective records, their approach to issues, well then maybe so but, you know, harry truman said i don't give them hell, i just tell it like it is, and they feel like they're in hell. so, you know, maybe congressman ryan's feeling the pressure of their own positions. >> david, the consequences of what happened and the death of the ambassador in libya has caused some scrutiny of those incidents and the secu

is the economy affecting this. economic issues are a big part of divorces. >> absolutely. i think that if couples have limited resources and someone has lost their job, those couples might just try to stick it out. divorce is expensive. if you can't afford to keep up two households. but if the resources are somewhat plentiful and two people are working and a woman says to herself, you know, i can support myself she won't be as afraid to leave. >> how much is access to online dating, social media, people reconnecting with people from their past playing into it? >> it's an interesting question. because i think definitely there's the hope when people divorce that they are going to find somebody else to connect with. but because marriage is really now about personal fulfillment, they are really looking to even go at it on their own if that so be it. it's better to be on one's own people are think than to be in a relationship that's less supportive. >> when you stress the word thinking, what your saying >> i'm saying people are being mindful of whether or not they are going to actually go ahead and di
